Women sue DPS for roadside body cavity search

12/19/2012

Two women claim they were molested during a body cavity search on the side of the road. They are now suing the Texas Department of Public Safety and its officers.

Angel Hobbs, 38, and her 24-year-old niece, Ashley Hobbs, were stopped along Highway 161 in July.

"My name is Trooper Ferrell. I work for the highway patrol. Reason for the contact is I watched both of you throw cigarettes out," the trooper said according to dash cam video.

The women explained they were on a road trip heading to a casino in Oklahoma. The trooper said he smelled marijuana in the car.
